American RobinAmerican Robin

Scientific Name: Turdus migratorius

The American Robin is the state bird of Connecticut, Michigan and Wisconsin, the American Robin is a familiar songbird in the thrush family.  They exist in towns and woodlands, and are commonly seen on suburban lawns exhibiting their “running and stopping” actions as they collect their morning worms.

The America Robin eats diverse things throughout the day, including earthworms in the morning, and fruits and berries in the late afternoon.  They are frequently lively during the day when the birds feed on fruits and berries in smaller groups.  They gather in great flocks at night to settle in trees in secluded areas.  During the summer, the American robin defends a breeding territory and is less social.

The American Robin’s diet generally consists of small insects, earthworms, beetle grubs, caterpillars, grasshoppers, and wild fruits such as berries.  Their ability to switch to berries allows them to fly much farther north than most other birds.

The average life span of an American Robin is about 2 years, with a few living as long as 14 years.  Robins are considered a representation of spring. The color of their eggs coined the name Robin’s Egg Blue.  American Robins are especially affectionate of bathing, and are very engrossed with backyard garden bird baths.

Distinctive Features: ruddy-orange breast and belly, white under tail coverts, dark head with semi-circle white eye hoop, marked throat, black back and wings, mainly yellow bill, the adolescent is paler in color with dark spots on its breast.

Male & Female Characteristics: the male’s colors are brighter and his head is black, where the female’s head is gray.

Breeding Season:

April – July, 2 -3 broods per season, one of the earliest North American birds to lay eggs.

Migration: most travel south to Florida, the Gulf Coast, central Mexico and Pacific Coast, returning north in February and March.
